    So the smell of cookies is going to remind him of panic and failure in the future?

    It only works one way, tho. Once again encountering a particular smell or taste may summon back a memory of the prior occasion, but simply remembering the occasion doesn’t allow you to relive the smell or taste.

    I knew a guy in college that had a different flavor of candy for each class. He’d suck on a candy while studying or doing his homework, and again at test time. He swore by it. His grades were decent enough, but I wouldn’t call it definitively true.

    I’ve never heard anything about “Italy 2004” and espresso’s effects on memory or recall. I don’t see any results come up in searches either.

    I don’t know. For 20 or more years after I quit smoking I would dream about it and could smell cigarette smoke in my dream. Maybe not the same thing though.

    The smell of the binding of a certain book always brings back memories to me, as it smells the same as a book I my parents read to me when I was 4.

    Does anyone else have a smell that brings back old memories?

    He is using the smell as a mnemonic referring to studying of the answers. Interesting idea.

    No results? You did type in “smells as memory triggers” or something close? I obtained dozens of choices. Here is part of just one:

    2004, espresso is Frazz’s memory, not a scientific test.

    I’m old enough to remember my test papers smelling like mimeograph ink, and later, ditto duplicating fluid. For years after school if I came within smelling distance with either aroma, I would have flashbacks to my school years. Now, since neither is used anymore, I haven’t experienced it in a long time.

    Madeleines. Marcel Proust. Problem: I can’t remember the recipe.

    Mr. Burke is writing something on the board. I never saw anything like that in my school. My teachers liked the chalkboards to be clean so they could lean against them while relating anecdotes or insulting us for the hour. But my teachers wouldn’t wear a mod shirt like Mr. Burke has here. They went for the worn out dressy look. The male teachers wore old polyester dress clothing.

    We never had assessment tests. The coach/teachers had already assessed us as future factory workers, like our dads. And they were satisfied with that. They wanted to concentrate on important things, like football. It was their own future they were concerned about.

    You came from some alien place, not of this Earth.
